- 1 July 1996
In Tyldesley v TML Plastics Ltd (24 January 1996) EOR68C, the EAT holds that in the absence of a suggestion that the factor relied on by the employer to explain a pay differential was indirectly discriminatory, no requirement of objective justification arises under s.1(3) of the Equal Pay Act 1970.
